episode information

Title Duration Blurb
Part One 29' 52" As disaster looms on Gallifrey, home to the Time Lords, the Doctor finds himself trapped on a distant planet. There, his only companions are a drowning girl, a bitter old crone, and a crippled old man. And a swarm of bio-assassins, ready to kill everything in their path...
Part Two 26' 42" Locked out of the TARDIS, the Doctor finds himself on a ship as it is torpedoed by a German U-Boat during the First World War. Rescued by the Germans, the Doctor realises that some of the crew are controlled by a quite unearthly force...
Part Three 29' 45" The Doctor is trapped aboard the starcruiser Edifice. But most of he crew are dead, and those that have survived are in fear of something that can eat time itself. But at the back of the Doctor's mind, something is niggling. This all seems very familiar...
Part Four 39' 01" The Doctors are brought back to Gallifrey by the conquerors of time, The Knights of Velyshaa. But does the Temperon, the legendary time beast they have trapped beneath the Capitol, know the secrets of a far greater evil? And must one of the Doctors make the ultimate sacrifice to finally defeat the sirens of time?

back cover blurb

The Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Doctors, together for the first time!

Gallifrey is in a state of crisis, facing destruction at the hands of an overwhelming enemy. And the Doctor is involved, in three different incarnations - each caught up in a deadly adventure, scattered across time and space. The web of time is threatened - and someone wants the Doctor dead.

The three incarnations of the Doctor must join together to set time back on the right track - but in doing so, will they unleash a still greater threat?
